I sent in my Xbox 360 to Microsoft, and they're fixing it for free. I forgot to remove the hard drive, and it got stole though.. =[. So it cost me the amount to get a new hard drive..Forget how much that was.

So yeah. Microsoft fixed mine for free, including shipping & handling. I payed nothing. :D.

RRODs can be fixed for free.

I bought a xbox in 2006 and it stopped reading disks around feb of 2007. Microsoft sent me a refurbished 360 for free and I gave them back mine

Nintendo has the best customer service.  They're helpful, American, actually know what they're talking about, and usually don't put you through 12 different people.

Yeah, I phoned Nintendo once about the wii not connecting well to the wireless USB thing.

The guy was really nice, and he genuinely wanted me to succeed in getting it to work.  Apparently some of the spyware programs on my PC were blocking it :|

The RRoD dont happen anymore (or happen much much less frequently). The truth behind it is that Microsoft went cheapo and manufactured their 360s with cheaper video cards (or something similar) and they overheated a lot easier.

Microsot lost over $1 billion in extended warranties and replacements that they replaced the faulty chips with better ones that dont overheat as easily.

Basically, any 360 bought after Nov 2007 will (most probably) not get the RRoD. I recently bought my 360 a few weeks ago and theres been no problems with it at all.

yeah im just saying that around 60% of 360s bought before Nov 07 had the RRoD happen to them. Your 360 would still have the chip that can overheat easier....but im not saying it will happen
